About Broadway Museum and Art Gallery
Housed in a beautiful 17th Century former coaching inn, Broadway Museum & Art Gallery opened in 2013. The building, now called Tudor House, has been extended and adapted over time, but still retains many original features as well as displaying architectural flourishes which reflect the trends of passing eras. In the mid 19th Century, when people started to travel by train rather than stagecoach, the inn closed, and Tudor House became variously a farmstead, a private residence, and then, for 80 years from the 1930s to the early 2000s, it served as the headquarters of H. W. Keil Ltd, a well-known and highly esteemed dealer in antique furniture. Today it is one of a very few 17th Century buildings in Broadway that you can come inside and explore.
The Museum Collection includes fine old English furniture donated by the Keil family, and paintings, porcelain, glassware and other artefacts curated by the Ashmolean Museum Oxford. There are also three stunning special exhibitions every year. Please visit our What’s On page for more details.
The Museum explores the heritage and history of Broadway Village, and there are rooms dedicated to the Broadway Artists’ Colony which established itself towards the end of the 19th Century, and to Broadway, the village community, in the 19th, 20th and 21st Centuries. The Museum is also home to the Willard Room which displays over 25 amazing micro sculptures by internationally renowned artist Willard Wigan MBE. Willard is a self-taught artist whose incredible micro sculptures are celebrated in the Guinness Book of World Records.
